“I can think of at least 12 other George Michael songs that would’ve…”

Mention them 12 and the song, please

  • Elton John, this is obvious since he was George Michael’s hero, and later a friend, and they had a chart topping song together- Don’t Let The Sun Go Down on Me
  • Aretha singing “I Knew You Were Waiting For Me”, their duet
  • Halsey tbh as much as I joke about her she would have been great doing a Wham song 
  • Usher singing “Father Figure”
  • Janelle Monae singing “Too Funky”
  • Adam Lambert, I know he’s not really relevant but he is so much more suited to a George Michael tribute, he could sing the hell out of “Careless Whisper”
  • Kesha singing “Heal the Pain”! how beautiful and perfect for her would that have been! And so great for a tribute to someone who inspired many.
  • Sam Smith, “One More Try”
  • One Direction singing “Young Guns (Go For It)” as a nod to his boy-band roots (and 1D, like him, are so much more than the “pretty boy” image)
  • Rihanna singing “I Want Your Sex”
  • even Justin Timberlake singing “Careless Whisper”!

Man what?! After a stressful and hot day and waiting in line around the corner of The Howard Theater, we were able to experience the powerful energy of the artists associated with Wondaland Records. Artists Janelle Monae, Jidenna, St. Beauty, Roman GianArthur, and Deep Cotton. The wait was totally worth it. All of these artists together put on such a versatile show I felt like I paid for it! And the most powerful part of the show was everyone singing Janelle Monae’s song “Hell You Talmbout” which is an ode to the unarmed black victims who have been murdered unjustly at the hands of police brutality. I felt so much energy from this song as I have recently been feeling drained and depressed by so many of these murders happening. I hope you enjoy these photos and please remember Black Lives Matter. 

“This song is a vessel. It carries the unbearable anguish of millions. We recorded it to channel the pain, fear, and trauma caused by the ongoing slaughter of our brothers and sisters. We recorded it to challenge the indifference, disregard, and negligence of all who remain quiet about this issue. Silence is our enemy. Sound is our weapon. They say a question lives forever until it gets the answer it deserves… Won’t you say their names?” -Janelle Monae
